MINI PAPER BUILDINGS
This page has pics of the different card & paper models that I have put together. Most of these were free models found on the internet and reduced to a smaller size by me.
Approx. 8 1/2" tall at the tallest point. This is reduced to 50% of the original model found at disneyexperience.com There are 2 more towers in the back which can not be seen in this pic.
The instruction were in German (sure wish I could have read them) but there were a few construction pics.
The real life Cinderella's Castle is in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Florida, USA. It was completed in July 1971. It is 189 feet tall and has 27 towers. This simplified model only has 9 towers.
There is also another Cinderella's Castle at the Disneyland in Tokyo, Japan.
Big Ben Models
The Real life Big Ben Tower is 316 feet tall. Big Ben is actually the name of the main bell in the tower. The tower became fully constructed in 1858 and became operational September 7, 1859. This tower is located at the Northeast end of the House of Parliament Building in Westminister, London, England.

It was the first structure in the world to surpass the 1000 foot height. Ground breaking for this was September 19, 1928 and it was opened to public May 27, 1930.
